Outcomes-Based Program Review 2

Closing Achievement Gaps In- and Outside the Classroom With Alignment to Predictive Analytics and Performance Metrics

“The two “A’s” by which higher education is evaluated today are ACCOUNTABILITY and ASSESSMENT. This book has laid out a very effective case for using assessment in response to the cry for accountability from all constituents of higher education. From Congress to accreditors, employers and the general public, this book can be easily used to help all parties better understand how institutions use assessment to ensure a quality education is being provided to its students.”

Teaching as the Art of Staging

A Scenario-Based College Pedagogy in Action

"Do you want to be a truly creative and inspiring instructor? Then you must read Weston’s Teaching as the Art of Staging. Taking 'student-centered' and 'experiential learning' to whole new levels, his innovative pedagogy relies on staging learning situations and letting your students run with them. Weston deftly demonstrates how you can become an impresario with scenarios, whatever your discipline, by drawing on his broad teaching experience in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities."

Linda B. Nilson, Director Emerita, Office of Teaching Effectiveness and Innovation

“Deep learning is hard. This book shows how we can help all of our students transform the challenge and struggle of learning into a desirable difficulty. By blending the latest research with concrete instructional applications, Persellin and Daniels offer practical strategies that faculty in any discipline can use to enhance student learning and motivation. This slim volume is worth its weight in pedagogical gold for both faculty and educational developers.”

Peter Felten, Executive Director, Center for Engaged Learning, and Professor of History

Five Key Principles for a Creative and Sustainable Scholarly Practice

"Most researchers will tell you that they chose their career to do research, not to write about it and writing makes them feel uncomfortable. Danelle Stevens expertly emphasizes the development of positive attitudes that defuse that discomfort. So, this book can benefit all young researchers as part of their apprenticeship and those many, established researchers who still feel uncomfortable when they face the inevitable task of having to tell the world what they have discovered."
